The 5th Annual Mainpage Awards

Recommended Posts

I will make my return to heading the mainpage awards this year, and who knows--maybe I'll actually have the tabulations done before June. :doh:

The rules will be the same as years past. I'm going to make up all the categories and post them here in a few days. We'll start voting in January and it'll end later in the month. (I'm going to be out of town for a few days late in January, so I'll have voting go until the day I get back in town--whatever day it turns out to be.) The podcasts and articles and reviews up for voting are anything posted between January 1st, 2010 and December 31st, 2010.

Anyway, just letting everyone know that I should have much more time to run the voting again. However, if it looks like I won't, I'll hand it over to someone else much earlier than...well, 6 months ago.

More for Mike than James, but would I be allowed to send something for the FYEO feed imploring for votes? ie/ "our backs are up against it, given how many people WFP bring to the site. Batey, Grant, Paterson - we're counting of you in our hour of need!!!"

And even then, Richard would probaly vote for Bigger on the Inside. The traitor.... :madgo:

And now we realize why Tranquil Tirades launched in December. It's so it is only has three competitors for best new podcast as opposed to the ten Dubs launches next year so he is leading half the forum. :P

I need someone to make me a sandwich.

You've just been nominated.

One of these days Alice, one of these days...

Fine, fine, I'll nominate your Fantastic Four review that made me want to start picking up the book. Happy now?

I forgot Mike was super-busy this week, so I'll just go ahead and post this here for everyone. Send all ballots to awards@earth-2.net. All ballots must be received by February 1st. Any received after that will not be counted. Also, make sure you put things in the right category. I will be forced to DQ any votes for things in the wrong category. Any questions, simply PM me, or ask here and I'll be happy to clarify.

I think Kellen has had additional co-hosts on Animezing Podcast that weren't Randy or Steph.

And technically, Pandy was on the first FYEO of the year.

[Can someone please compile a list of all of the comic book reviews published in 2010? I believe all of the reviews were in IIWY? 114-153. Along with the comic and issue number, make sure to note the author of the review, plus the edition of IIWY? it's from. Once done, please PM me said list so it can be posted here. Thanks!]

I'll do it. I'm going to compile the stats again anyway.

It really didn't feel like I did that many. Wow.

Shame that all of the reviews have been shoved into one category, though.

James Trenchard and Brennan Lumsden can be added to the contributors list. And for those who wish to thin out their "to listen to" list for selecting best podcast episodes I will throw out Episode 54 (Sailor Stars) and Episode 60 (Brina Palencia) as my two personal best picks of the year.

Not to sound like a complete moron (again), but where DO we vote? This is the first year I've come into contact with earth-2, so I'm a little lost about that.

If it's the same as previous years you email your ballot to awards@earth-2.net

I really like the ballot this year, it's streamlined and does a really nice job establishing which contributors, podcasts and articles stand out. I look forward to delving into this, since I've got a couple of weeks until I'm back in actual classes. Good job James, Mike and anyone else who can provide a helpful how to/eligibility guide for voting.
